It looks like Google is getting ready to launch a Jio competitor called WizPhone WP006. The new Google WizPhone WP006 has been unveiled in Indonesia and looks like a feature phone along with some smart functionality. The new Google phone looks like a feature phone, similar to how Jio Phone looks but comes with KaiOS and some smart functionality including Google Assistant that can be given voice commands.

The look-alike Google phone is powered by the same KaiOS that also powers the JioPhone and the JioPhone 2. And just like the JioPhone, the WizPhone WP006 also supports apps like WhatsApp that have been made specifically for KaiOS.

The Google WizPhone WP006 is a feature phone but with some smart functionality built into it. Just like the JioPhone, the WizPhone WP006 supports 4G connectivity. It also comes with a special version of WhatsApp installed on it, and its users will be able to summon Google Assistant on WizPhone WP006 with voice commands. With the Google Assistant, the WizPhone can use voice commands to do many tasks like making calls, sending messages, or playing music/videos. Even Facebook’s Whatsapp is also available on KaiOS.

The WizPhone WP006 comes with 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, a 2.4-inch screen, 2MP rear camera and VGA front camera, 1800 mAh battery, and Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8905 chipset.

As for now, the phone is available only in Indonesia which was launched at the GoogleforIndonesia event. The WizPhone WP006 has been priced at IDR 99,000, which roughly translates to around Rs 490 in Indian currency. In other words, the WizPhone WP006 is a $7 phone. But if Google indeed ever plans to bring something like the WizPhone WP006 to India, it will definitely be a tough competition for the JioPhone.
